Just in case you don't know, Vanessa, you can read your PM's by going to the "green toolbar" on top of page where it says "Messages" (It should have small white envolope if you have messages) Click on that to read your messages.

I have been looking at this thread now for a couple of months, but am not sure what it is trying to achieve, other than a forum to allow a small handful of members to wave to each other every other day or so.

The point is?


Cathy Report 27 Oct 2010 18:37

And your problem is?


BarbaraFromYorkshire Report 28 Oct 2010 02:06

Oh Dear--InspectorGreenPen -- ( you have put QUOTE---"but am not sure what it is trying to achieve" --"The point is?" ---UNQUOTE)

Did you not READ Cathys first posting on this thread ??

The point is ---This is the "TIPS BOARD" and as so many new GR members don't know how to get back to their threads --I think Cathys tip needs to stay near the top of tips board,

I don't think a friendly "Wave" hurts anyone to keep this tip up the board. ---and beats the sarcastic remarks made on some threads, which scares a lot of members (new or old) not to post if they need help, in case they are made to feel "silly" or "stupid" or worse !!! (being a member of GR since 2003 I have seen plenty of those remarks !!)

To be honest, InspectorGreenPen , I don't see your "problem" with this thread, unless it seems too friendly for you !!!


BarbaraFromYorkshire Report 28 Oct 2010 11:37

~~~~~~~~~~~~Another good morning nudge and wave to Cathy, Ken and all on GR to keep this great tip up the board ~~~~~~~~~~~


Cathy Report 28 Oct 2010 21:07

Perhaps the poor man suffers from sea-sickness Barbara and can't stomach all those waves ~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nudge up for new members :-)



BarbaraFromYorkshire Report 29 Oct 2010 12:12

Maybe Cathy, but they are calming, friendly waves, and from some of the postings in your thread its obvious your tip has helped some GR members, and perhaps a lot more who hasn't posted on here. :-))

so here goes a good afternoon nudge and~~~~~~~~~ for a great tip Cathy


InspectorGreenPen Report 30 Oct 2010 10:15

I don't have a problem at all, just making a polite observation. We had a saying at work. "It is a brilliant solution to a problem which doesn't really exist"

I'll leave you all to it, make a friendly wave and wish you all good look.


BarbaraFromYorkshire Report 30 Oct 2010 13:09

Good afternoon nudge for Cathys thread, and a friendly wave ~~~~~~~ to all on GR
